Oh hey, we’re ready!

We’re back!

Our dining room and patios are OPEN and ready to serve you – and trust us we are smiling! 😷🙌

1) Reservations are expected, especially with limited seating capacity
2) We will continue to offer no-touch Curbside Pick-up and Lacombe Delivery, off-sales and drink kits!
3) Our NEW MENU just dropped today!

Go to cilantroandchive.ca and click on “DINE-IN GUESTS : COVID-19” to find out all the changes we’ve made, what you should expect from us, and what we expect from you.

The next evolution of Cilantro and Chive is here. All to help ensure the very best in health and safety for you, our team, and the people in our community.

THANK YOU for your patience as we’ve taken time to fine-tune our business. We couldn’t be here today without the support with all the pickup and delivery.

Our team is looking forward to seeing you soon!

We’re not quite ready.

This is us.

Our dining room is still not open to the public yet, and trust us – it’s really hard.

So many phone calls, messages, and people we talk to at the front want our dining room to be open. We’d LOVE nothing more than to just make that happen.

Still working hard behind the scenes to prepare for that day. Investing a lot of time and energy into all the proper protocols are in place and we do things the right way. While also taking the time to re-invest in our restaurant and systems, to help ensure we’ll be here for years to come.

Humbly put, we also take care of a lot of guests from around Alberta, and not just Lacombe. So we want to make sure that we don’t add to the problem at hand for our community.

Again, THANK YOU to everyone for your patience and empathy in the matter. Our staff also feels safe and secure, and we’re able to support them which is priority. Thanks to you!

So we are still are rocking out Curbside Pick-up and Delivery, and look forward to seeing you – even if it’s from a distance!

Can’t wait for brighter days!

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

We will not re-open for dining on May 14th

COVID-19 has proven to be the biggest challenge many of us will face in our lifetime. It is our defining moment.

The changes we make, and how we come out on the other side is in our hands. With relaxations coming down, we are incredibly excited about returning to a new sense of normal. However we also want to ensure the health and safety of our guests, our team and our family. With this in mind we will open our doors when the time is right.

WE WILL NOT BE OPENING OUR DOORS TO DINE IN GUESTS ON THURSDAY MAY 14th, but will continue to serve you for Curbside Pick-up and Delivery.

When the time is right we will let you know through all of our social media channels. We greatly appreciate all of your support, enthusiasm and genuine appreciation. You have taken an incredibly tough situation and made the most of it. Thank YOU! We couldn’t do this without YOU!

 

Rieley, Kim, William, Brynn, Hannah and the entire Cilantro and Chive Team

Just incredible.

In a month where everyone’s worlds were flipped outside down, support for our beloved Burger of the Month Program was AMAZING, affirming we truly have the BEST guest’s hands down!

Local guest chef Brenda Sargeant helped provide the creative juices for the “Date Night” burger!

$2 from every burger sold in March went directly to Brenda’s charity of choice the Women’s Program at Turning Point.

Now more than ever we need to continue to support those programs that support the at risk and vulnerable in our community, and programs like the Women’s Program which help women facing significant struggles set and achieve their goals. We’re better together!

Brenda was thrilled to turn over a cheque for $880 today, dollars Turning Point will use directly to support very vulnerable women and often their children in our community.

Thanks to the incredible community support we see for our Burger of the Month program month after month, we’ve had the opportunity to give back over $60,000 to local charities over the past 38 months!

THANK-YOU!

You did it again! February’s Burger of the Month raises $1160

Does it get much better than not one but TWO guest chef’s and TWO Burgers?!  It was a first for our beloved Burger of the Month Program and it was a hit!

Local guest chef’s Alvin and Helen Peck provided the creative inspiration behind “Two of a Kind”, which included two sliders.  Slider one was topped with a bacon infused beef patty, jack cheese, caramelized onion, basil aioli, greens, tomato and a pickle, while slider two included jerk chicken with cumin aioli, sesame slaw, lettuce and sweet potato chips on naan bread!  $2 from every burger sold in February went directly to the Peck’s charity of choice Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lacombe and District (BBBSLD).

The Peck’s were keen to support youth in our community and they couldn’t think of an organization that does better work with local young people than BBBS.  Alvin Peck points to the impact the programs offered make on kids “The young people are our future and if they have early exposure to community and caring hopefully, they will share that with others as they go through life”.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lacombe and District is currently working with 162 youth through their various mentoring programs like In School Mentoring, Community Based Mentoring, Tutoring Tuesday, Kids and Kops, Go Girls and Game On.  These programs push youth to reach their full potential and help them avoid many risk-taking behaviours; with kids matched with a volunteer staying in school longer, seeing better grades, being more productive, as a result, they are less likely to offend.

The Peck’s were thrilled to turn over a cheque for $1,160 today, dollars BBBSLD will use directly for mentoring programs.  Every $1 invested in mentoring returns $23 in social return to society, with mentored youth seeing long term positive results in life, in community and at work.  BBBSLD recently celebrated two 10-year matches which is a testament to the success of their programs and how they create a long-term impact.

We’re blessed with the BEST guests who get behind our Burger of the Month program month after month, allowing us the opportunity to give back over $60,000 to local charities over the past 37 months!  THANK-YOU!

The March Burger of the Month is the “Date Night”.  It includes grilled chicken, date and apple jam, melted brie, apple slices, cucumber slices, spinach and garlic parmesan aioli on a brioche bun!  It was created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Brenda Sargeant with $2 from every burger sold going directly to her charity of choice Turning Point Society’s Women’s Program

Another Pop-Up of Ice Cream Sandwich goodness!

There is nothing better than seeing kids jump in, take to task and LOVE every minute of it at our Ice Cream Sandwich Pop-up Sales! Every 3 months we’re at a new school as part of our new Ice Cream Sandwich Program, our latest stop, stop number 3 landed us at Terrace Ridge in Lacombe!

Under the program we kick back full proceeds from the pop-up sale ($4/sandwich) as well as $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold in the restaurant over the 3-month period to the school.

Grade 6 students at Terrace Ridge were ALL IN, helping our team scoop up and serve 173 ice cream sandwiches! Our latest creation is a play on black forest cake; 2 maraschino cherry cookies with Dutch chocolate ice cream and sprinkles!

Terrace Ridge will be using the proceeds from the ice cream sandwich sales to help replace and supplement Physical Education Supplies and Resources. Schools do receive funding for basic gym supplies like dodge balls, volleyballs, basketballs, nets, hula hoops, bean bags, badminton rackets and more but maintaining those items each year is costly. The school needs to ensure they always have enough equipment for 30-50 students to participate at a time and with over 400 students at the school that equipment is well used! School Principal Deborah Van Delden says they are also eager to expose students to as many new and exciting opportunities as possible and they currently have a wish list of Physical Education supplies they would LOVE to purchase. That list includes indoor floor curling, don’t walk in the hallway decals, Gaga Ball, and 9 square in the air.

A BIG thank-you to the amazing group of Grade 6 students who worked alongside our team, and to all parents who helped their kids purchase an ice cream sandwich treat at school!
